    Great list, no complaints from me. I would add the Alec Bradley Family Blend – amazing flavors, medium bodied and pretty cheap too. There are, of course, dozens (hundreds?) of other choices that belong on this list but this is an awesome starting point.

    Nice selection! I would add the NUB cigar line, especially the newer Maduro

    I’m a sucker for anything Padron. I especially agree with the Oliva Serie V they are very tasty but I have had a problem with a couple being plugged.

    I would recommend anything from Romeo y Julieta, especially the Bully ( Robusto). Medium bodied, nice smoke…

    Have you guys considered offering your recommendations as a Cigar Inspector variety box?

    Good list … Id like to add to the CAO family of can’t-go-wrong cigars. My personal favorite from CAO is their SOL , it has a bright green band , very unmistakable. One of the few store bought sticks that made me go “Oooooh !!”

    All great smokes but I would like to suggest folks check out Kristoff. Great smokes and their website will help guide people to which cigar(s) best suit their tastes after a few simple questions …. which once completed, will push you to a few recommendations.


    Happy smoking.

    For non-cigar experienced friends and new-smokers I keep a batch of the milder classics in small-ish sizes in my humidor. These names are recognizable around the world: Montecristo Classic robusto, Macanudo, Romeo & Julieta. This way I can impress my friends and they will not be met with blank stares when they share they smoked a “some name they will not remember”… A side benefit is I can do this without having to give up one of my Tatuaje Blacks or My Father/Don Pepin favorites…
